In this lighthearted and entertaining buddy cop drama with a twist, Commander Léa Soler (Astrid Veillon, Perfect Crimes) has just taken over as head of the Montpellier police investigations division. Here she’ll be working with Paul Marchal (Stéphane Blancafort, Origins), a wild card of a cop who’s brilliant but totally uncontrollable. It would be just another day at the office for Léa if it weren’t for the fact that she and Paul are both single parents of teenagers and both recently divorced — from each other!

Tandem: Season 1 premieres Tuesday, January 4.

The Return of Arsène Lupin (Le Retour d’Arsène Lupin) (France)
